Our publications cover a wide range of economic and financial market developments. We focus on topics about which we have something of value to say, not on chatter and speculation. At the same time, we don’t shy from making clear recommendations for action. Even, and especially, when forecasting future developments is very challenging.

Book: “The case for a humbler economics”

On what the financial industry does and does not know.

Klaus W. Wellershoff launches an appeal for more modest forecasts about the state of the economy and financial markets. His more realistic outlook on growth, inflation and developments in financial markets offers practical recommendations for taking economic decisions.

Although many economists may claim the opposite, we actually know very little about the future. But the little that we do know, can be very insightful. Klaus W. Wellershoff cuts to the chase, and delivers practical instruments to assess the development of the economy and financial markets. In addition, he delivers a scientifically-grounded basis for managing wealth. He uses numerous examples to illustrate his arguments and offers an overview of the current state of the global economy and the market for private wealth management in Switzerland.
